Is this light brown or dark brown in color?
AJ T on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what your definition of 'light' and 'dark' are but it's a dark brown color in the glass. If you hold it up to a light you can just see some come through so it's not a 'stout' level darkness.

Great go-to porter
This beer is easy to brew and has always produced a solid drinkable pint. I'm not the greatest brewer by a long stretch. I like to brew every once in a while and this beer always brings complements when I show up with it. My last batch was my first kegged beer and it was great to the last pour.

Easy and tasty
This is an easy first brew for beginners that produces a good-tasting and drinkable porter. Not too heavy, but flavorful.

Awesome Beer
This was a great beer that i brewed. It had a nice roasty flavor with a hint of caramel. This was actually a crowd pleaser from my friends. Only thing i would change is adding a little less priming sugar during bottling, as it was a little too carbonated for my tastes, but overall Amazing Beer!!

Great First Brew
This was pretty basic to brew so it is easy for first-timers. I haven't brewed in a long time so I just went by the book and had no problems.

The taste has been everything we were hoping for. Low on hops with complex malty flavor. Our friends really like it too.

Perfect for winter but I'd drink it all year round.

Turned this kit into an awesome barleywine
I left out the chocolate malt, added a half pound of molasses and brewed a half batch with this kit. Made a yeast starter with Safale US-05 and aerated well. A few weeks after bottling this is already tasting great. My wife, who is normally a wine drinker, loved it and asked me to make more. Will order two kits and make a full 5 gallon batch next time.

Good as it is,but GREAT if you...
add some pecans in the boil.

I have done this kit twice. The first time with 1/2 a pound of roasted pecan for the last 15 minutes of the boil. This had minimal effect. The next time I did a full pound for 60 minutes. WOW what a difference!

This beer lends itself to additions VERY well, and cold aging it was successful as well. It got better and better the longer it went.

Good Porter
I brewed this a couple of times and used US04 yeast. The last time I added half a bottle of hazelnut flavoring and it was really good after a month in quart bottles. Will keep brewing this porter.
